Despite the recent changes in the Detroit Pistons’ front office, it appears Monty Williams will remain as head coach.

Marc Stein reported on Substack that the Pistons have not formally announced Williams’ return, but indications suggest he will stay.

The new Pistons president of basketball operations, Trajan Langdon, has yet to hold his introductory news conference since his appointment in late May.

A source informed Stein that the hiring of Fred Vinson from New Orleans as an assistant coach signals Williams’ likely retention.

Williams signed a six-year contract worth nearly $80 million, and it seems he will continue into Year 2 of this agreement.

Last season, Williams’ first with Detroit, the Pistons ended with a league-worst 14-68 record.

Despite the challenging season, the Pistons’ decision to keep Williams suggests faith in his long-term vision for the team.
